Directly after being crowned, our new court is off on their year long journey! Friday morning they begin with shopping for the fall wardrobe. Billy's Western wear is a long time sponsor of the Queen's Court and always makes sure to have everything these girls need! After spending the better part of the day shopping, it's time for the girls to head to their first ever event - The Kendall County Fair! Friday evening they were introduced for the first time in the rodeo arena while riding the Ford Truck provided by Jenning's Anderson Ford. They also took pictures with the winner's of the Friday night Mutton Bustin and calf scramble.
Saturday, they began with the Kendall County Fair Parade in downtown Boerne for their first ride on the Queen's Float. They mingled with other floats and paraded down Main Street while waving to the spectators there to watch the great floats. After the parade, they are back at the fair grounds for some time with the Rockin' BBQ Cook-Off Contestants tasting the great BBQ. They took pictures with the winner's during the awards ceremony later in the day - check out our BBQ page to see those. While at the parade, the livestock show kicked off. The girls made it back for some wonderful photos with our goat and lamb winners. Then they headed to the carnival for some great fun on the rides. Next on the agenda was back to the rodeo arena for another ride on the Ford, some more Muttin Bustin and calf scramble awards. Last for the evening was some time under the Pavilion for the musical entertainment. You will also notice in the pictures below our Little Miss Runner Up, Brianna Marie Garza, blessed us with singing the National Anthem this year!
Sunday the girls started in the Livestock Show. The very first poultry winners ever at the Kendall County Fair were proudly pictured with our newly crowned court. They also took pictures with the winning heifers and steers. They spent some time browsing the vendors and at the petting zoo!! Just look at the smiles on their faces as they hold those cute little animals! Sunday afternoon, the Apple Pie contest was in full motion. They tasted some great Apple Pies and then had a photo op with the winners. Sunday as we start nearing the end of this year's Fair and Rodeo, the girls headed back to the arena for the Bull Blowout for a last ride on the Ford truck, some more Muttin Bustin and the calf scramble. As this year's fair came to a close, they spent the last few hours under the Pavilion listening to Cameron Nelson as he closed out our Fair.
